Factors that affect the amount of seepage of water into the ground are:
Large volumes of water found underground in the pore spaces is called an aquifer.
***best aquifers are those made of uncemented sands and gravel, followed by porous sandstones.
- when temperatures are high, the amount of evapotranspiration would also increase.
- the opposite is also true, low temperature causes low evapotranspiration.
Pollution is also threatening many groundwater supplies
